All I know is that when the Wrestling Observer are dropping Raw reports from their podcasts and replacing them with ROH TV reports (that they cream over) ROH are doing something right.

This show is laying a solid foundation for its own future. It's a nice complement to the rest of ROH's portfolio of stuff.
Yeah, cause everyone has to be in consensus with people on facebook or the Wrestling Observer or you're wrong.

I'm more bothered by the time its on than the actually quality of the show, though. I usually go out Sat night and i'm not going to stay up till 2 am monday morning just to watch ROH TV.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I've seen like one or two comments on each week's show in this thread. I haven't seen any storyline or character advancement or any interesting looking matches in any of the results. I haven't wanted to watch the show since the first week it ran. Obviously it'll take a while to get going, but they may have lost me already.

I'm talking about gauging whether or not it's "useless". If it's creating more talk and more positive talk about ROH across the internet, then I'd like to know how it's useless. That's the whole purpose of launching the product on a new platform.

If someone thinks that, because they didn't get whatever personal, wet dream scenario it is that they wanted, the entire show is "useless" then that person is an egotistical fuckhead. I'd like to think that no-one in this section is that ignorant.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I agree that the shows have been underwhelming.
Haven't been regularly following ROH since late last year and these shows don't make me want to start again.

Bryan also has plenty or friends there, is a Cornette apologist and accepts advertising from ROH.

Bryan is an out of touch bellend these days.

I rolled my eyes when Vinny said Nigel was an astoundly good commentator.

Or WWE and TNA are doing something wrong?

B&V review and plug UWF iPPVs. Doesn't mean they're putting on a good product or doing good business.

They can get away with ok shows until the end of the year to get new fans into the product but there will come a point when the level of the show has to improve before the new fans start to become complacent with the product. All it needs is just one great match and an intriguing angle at every tapings and then you can get away with solid stuff in amongst it but at the first tapings and the second on paper there was nothing all that great. Solid is fine for so long but there comes a time when it has to step up another level.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Why don't you just watch the show online McQueen?

I think what ROH has done with being so damn great in their booking and storylines throughout the years has gotten your guys hopes up way too much. After 4 episodes, there's been at least 4 quality matches that I guarantee are better than anything WWE or TNA has put on television in the past month. Obviously opinion based but I know by reading reviews on the net that a lot of people are agreeing on that and highly enjoy the alternative they're seeing. And as far as an intriguing storyline, Nigel had a staredown with Roddy in the ring at the end of the last episode, which caused an entire article on the ROH website. That's gotta go somewhere. This is what I've got after the first 4 episodes:

1. ROH Title: Davey Richards(c) vs. Roddy Strong - ***3/4 (Episode 3 10/8)
2. TV Title: El Generico(c) vs. Jay Lethal - ***3/4 (Episode 2 10/1)
3. Tag Team Titles: WGTT(c) vs. Kings of Wrasslin - ***1/4 (Episode 1 9/24)
4. Eddie Edwards vs. Michael Elgin - ***1/4 (Episode 4 10/15)

That is why it's called organized crime.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Didn't expect much from the show in the beginning except decent matches and for the most part that's what they've given. I can see where the underwhelming part comes in due to all the rematches on the shows making the old fans feel like they've seen most of this before. They do need to figure out a way to get past most continuity issues because why would anyone want to see Bennett/Lethal for the title tonight when right next to it they're advertising Generico's rematch with Lethal.

Yeah that was a pretty stupid idea on their part. Announcement for that match shouldn't have came til at least this Tuesday.

Lazy and aside from the Lethal/Generico match (which I missed the finish) nothing I saw really made me say "Hey this is great, I should watch every week." I want them to succeed but my interest in the indies is just really low right now.
